High Tech Materials IceVents feature exclusive and proprietary Supracor Stimulite impact-absorbing hexagonal honeycomb thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) technology. Stimulite is used and proven in the F/A-18 Hornet, V-22 Osprey, 787 Dreamliner, 747-8 Intercontinental and leading medical products.
Cord Management Hook and Loop accessories enable simple, custom installation and cord/tube management.

Increased Load Bearing Capacity

Loads are absorbed and dispersed evenly throughout the honeycomb matrix of IceVents. Because the cells are interconnected, when one cell buckles from impact, the walls of the adjacent cells also buckle to absorb the force, similar to a ripple effect. The fusion-bonded honeycomb in Stimulite absorbs shock in this manner and also has phenomenal load-bearing and load-balancing capability as a result of its elastomeric composition.

Stand-Off Ventilation

IceVents now can connect directly to the inside of all body armor equipped with body-facing loop fields/pontoons. This is ideal for dry and arid climates where evaporative cooling is effective. For humid climates, we recommend the unrivaled conductive cooling power of IcePlate.

Designed and manufactured in the USA.

Nice great!!!!!!!

Nice great!!!!!

Super breathable!

I just got the shoulder pads in Coyote brown for my issued plate carrier. After a week long shooting package, I can say I'm very happy with my purpose. Some considerations to take though, don and doffing gear can be an issue if you leave your should straps on, an easy fix of course by unclipping your support side. They can bind up on the ends and need adjustment after putting them on so a more rigid structure could be very helpful . Overall, the pads were very handy and saved my shoulders on a long hot and dirty week.

Take my money!

I got these about a month ago as I was preparing to go work in the Mojave desert. I work in the film industry and wear a chest rig Monday-Friday for eleven and a half hours a day. The thought of working in 100+ degrees with my chest rig on wasn’t sounding very appealing so when I found Qore Performance on Instagram I ordered a set. They completely work as advertised. I put them vertically behind my chest pouch and it keeps the air flowing between my tools and my body. I’ve found that I don’t sweat nearly as much as before and I stay much cooler while working. I do still sweat on my chest but I don’t sweat from my brow as much or feel as hot while wearing my gear. I’ve worn these on my rig for 3 5 day weeks straight and I can honestly say that they’ve changed my life wearing this chest rig. I’ll keep them on even when I get back to LA and work in sound stages again. In cooler work environments you just don’t sweat at all. I wanted to wait to write this review until I had enough time to use the product thoroughly .The only thing I’ve noticed is that they have started to smell a little bit. I don’t think there’s anything that can be done about that as they live in sweat day in and day out so it’s not to alarming. Over all 10/10 would recommend to anyone who wears tool belts, backpacks, chest rigs like in the film industry, anyone. It’s a wonderful product. And worth the investment. Once you buy one set you’re going to want more.

Amazing product

I wear plate carriers both on duty as well as have my own setup for out on the range, and summer heat would always make the experience miserable. However, once I decided to give the IceVents a try, I can never imagine wearing a carrier without them. Not only do they allow my body to disperse heat without build up of sweat, but they also help disperse the weight of my carriers and make it so much more comfortable. I can be wearing a carrier for hours without aching shoulders from pressure points. Also the customer service has been extremely helpful and wuick to respond to any questions I’ve had. Overall two thumbs up

Great for traveling...with kids

If you've ever traveled with a young one, you know how tiring it can be. No matter how well we plan, we always have a TON of stuff: suitcases, stroller, car seat, etc. We bought a travel diaper backpack to make things easier, but the shoulder pads weren't built for all-day wear. So, we got IceVents to give our shoulders a break and help prevent our backs from getting so sweaty. So far, so good!

I know these aren't cheap, but when you're traveling with kids, you'll do almost anything to make it easier. Installation was simple, and it's great that we can quickly and easily transfer these to any other bag/backpack we have at the house. Overall, worth the investment.
